Camera Modules for Embedded Systems: Make or Buy? – New White Paper
Miniaturization has been occurring throughout the world of technology, including for Vision Technology. Today, a growing number of applications are based on embedded vision systems.
One question that arises while developing such systems is which type of hardware should be used to capture images, and how. One potential solution is to buy commercial camera modules (in embedded applications, usually known as single-board cameras or board level cameras). Where high unit counts are involved, another option is to have in-house engineering for the integration of an image sensor onto a PCB. Which is better? Our White Paper "Camera Modules for Embedded Systems: Make or Buy? The Pros and Cons of Integrating Image Sensors In-House" explains the advantages and disadvantages of both approaches and helps you make the right decision for your embedded vision system.
